Melt Cosmetics Dark Matter and Love Sick



Hi Angels,

I know everyone is looking forward to the three day weekend that kicks off the summer. The day off will help me catch up with the makeup that I've purchased in the last few weeks.  You tube and Instagam have been abuzz about Melt Cosmetics.  This line has some killer lipstick colors and at the beginning of the year debuted two eye shadow palettes.  They are in stacks and called that as well.  I bought them both. They are the Dark Matter and Love Sick stacks.

These stacks are essential in completing that beautiful smoky eye or look with that killer pop of color.  Here are pics of the stack 

They are magnetized and have a mirror underneath the Melt cover.  Here is Dark Matter:

From top to bottom: Unseen-caramel
Enigma-rusted brown, Dark Matter-pitch black and Blur-blending beige eraser color. These colors are all matte.

Now let's look at the Love Sick stack.

From top to bottom: Amelie-a rich peach with gold shimmer, Love Sick-a burgundy-red matte, Fixated-matte gray with hints of blue, Promiscuous-bluewith purple  shifts and sheen.

These stacks are gorgeously pigmented and the color is true to the pan.  What you see is what you get. Here are swatches on MAC NW43 skin tone over primer:

From top left to right: (Dark Matter Stack)-Unseen, Enigma, Dark Matter and Blur
From bottom left to right:(Love Sick Stack)-Amelie, Love Sick, Fixated and Promiscuous. Each stack is $48.00 and sold at MeltCosmetics.com.

The colors are different takes on what most of us might already have in our stashes. There was a lot of thought put into these shadows by the ladies of Melt and this Pretty Prescriber appreciates it! 

So Angels, are you familiar with this line?Have you purchased the lipsticks or these stacks?  Let us know what you think.

Until next time Angels?

Kat Von D Everlasting liquid lipsticks

Hi Angels,

Sorry for the break.  We have lots of products we will be reviewing this season.  I'm currently on vacation with the family in Florida.  With this humid boggy weather, your makeup application needs to be adjusted.  One thing for sure if I'm stuck on a desert island I will pack my supply of Kat Von D Everlasting liquid lipsticks. Here are swatches of the ones I have on MAC NW43 skin.
From left to right: Lolita, Bauhaus, Outlaw, A GoGo and Luv.  The first and last lipsticks are always sold out at Sephora.  The Kat Von D line is exclusive to this store. They are $18 each.  

They go on smoothly and last until you have a super greasy meal.  I have tried quite a few of these lipsticks and either they feel like paste on the lips or they have no lasting power.  These are definitely top of the line.

So Angels are these on your makeup wish list or do you already own these babies?  What colors do you have?  Let us know what you think...

Until next time Angels,

AJ Crimson Sultry and Matte Lipsticks

Hi Angels,

This past February this Pretty Prescriber attended a makeup class given by AJ Crimson.  Mr. Crimson has been a makeup artist to the stars for years.  He has recently created a makeup line consisting of the industry favorite dual creme foundation. Today he is debuting a lipstick line called Sultry and Matte.  By the looks of the buzz on social media these will sell out. Here are pics of the lipstick courtesy of AJ Crimson's instagram.

If these lipsticks are anything like AJ Crimson's other products, they will be full of color and go on beautifully.  Here are swatches courtesy of AJ Crimson.com.

These luxe lipsticks are encased in a beautiful sleek tube.  They are available today (March 27, 2015)  at AJCrimson.com for $18.50.  I just ordered Pillow Talk, Bondage and SubCulture.  I cannot wait to get these home and review them for you. 

So Angels, do you see a color you like?  Will you be ordering one of these lippies?  Let us know what you think....

Until next time Angels

Too Faced Selfie Powder

Hi Angels,

I just received word that Too Faced Cosmetics is going make us all honest Selfie takers. Filters will no longer be needed. The brand released a palette of the light filtering powders.

Here is what the brand had to say:
"Selfie Powders are your filters for the real world! Our collection of weightless finishing powders mimic the effects of your favorite photo filters by using light-fragmenting technology to instantly brighten with diffused warmth, bronze with a smoothing glow, or add a cool ethereal light to the skin. Get close-up perfection in photos and look filter-flawless in real life!"

Let's take a look at the palette courtesy of Sephora.com:

From left to right: Sunrise, Totally Toasted and Moon River.  Angels I am intrigued, especially at the price of $39.00.  I have heard others comparing this palette to Guerlain Meteorites which are much more expensive. If you like that angelic, heavenly sheen, this should be right up your alley.   

The Too Faced No Filter Selfie Powder palettes are available at your local Sephora, Ulta, online and wherever else Too Faced Cosmetics  is sold.

So what do we think Angels? Are we going to give this palette a trial run on your Social Media page. Let us know what you think.  

Until next time Angels,

Roller Lash is slated for release on the 27th of February.  Sephora VIBs are able to score this pretty online on the18th and 19th while supplies last.  

I for one am interested. The brush and packaging are adorable.  If it does what it says, I will be a big fan.

O'Keeffe's for Healthy Feet Foot Creme


Hi Angels,

This Pretty Prescriber has a confession to make.  I had rough feet.  During the winter months my feet can give sand paper and rocks a run for their money. No amount of scrubbing and filing did the trick.  All of the expensive dry skin creams didn't even get through the thick skin.  

That is Until I was at my neighborhood Bed Bath and Beyond.  Yeah, I said Bed, Bath and Beyond.  I was looking at the products by the checkout stand and I saw this:


This O'Keeffe's Healthy Foot Cream.  At $6.99 I figured I didn't have much to lose so I bought it.  So after two weeks of twice a day usage my jar looks like this:

My feet feel like my baby's bottom.  All the flaky skin is gone as well as the cracked heels.  You better believe I will be going to buy another just so we never have a repeat of my dry cracked feet.

Angels, I suggest you run, not walk if your feet are not doing well in this cold weather.  This cream saved my feet, sheets and marriage. Lol!!!

So Angels, have we tried this foot cream?  If so what did you think?  Let us know you think....

Until next time Angels,

New Eyeshadows from Sugarpill

Hi Angels,

I was minding my own makeup business today when I received a message in my inbox. Sugarpill, a brand we have featured before is releasing new loose eyeshadows today at 2 p.m. PST.

Here's a look at the shadows courtesy of Sugarpillcosmetics:

Do you see what I'm seeing?  Penelope and Holy Ghost are speaking to me. If these are true to Sugarpill's reputation, what you see is what you get?  I can't wait to see them in person? 

What do we think Angels?  Are you interested in any of these loose shadows?  Let us know what you think and tell us about what you bought. 

Until next time Angels

Lily Pulitzer for Target

Hi Angels!!
 Happy New Year again from us here at the Pretty Presciption!  

The blogosphere has been abuzz about Target's next spring collection. On April 19th the Lily Pulitzer collection will be released online.  Lily Pulitzer is the queen of prep whose designs were worn by her schoolmate Jackie O.  Her bright understated patterns are quite a hit in the resort wear department at high end department stores.  

The collaboration is a one stop shop for this vacation season.  It features everything from bikinis, glassware, throw pillows and lawn chairs.  The clothing will also have plus sizes so everyone can be included. The price points are from $2-150.

Here are some pics courtesy of the Huffpost, PopSugar and ForbesLife. 

More beach/resort wear 
Poolside


Footwear 


I do have to say, although the reactions to the collection has been positive, there are a lot of unhappy campers. Some People on Social media that have other Lily Pulitzer pieces fear that this collection will make their pieces seem more common.  
As someone that has a collection of Target Philip Lim bags, I highly doubt that someone would mistake the high end articles with the Target ones.  The styles, colors and in this case even the patterns are exclusive to Target. So I don't see the need for the worry.

All in all this will be a great collection for Lily Pulitzer lovers.  It has a little something for everyone.  So what do we think Angels?  Will you be stalking Target.com on April 19th or is this a pass?  Let us know what you decide.

Until next time Angels,
Happy Haulin'
